I've had a pinched nerve in my mid to upper back for many years that has effected a streak down my left arm with numbness reaching to my left index finger. There are times when the numbness is worse than others, especially when it rains or with high humidity.
about a year ago I began to notice that when ever my left arm and left index finger "acts up" with this numbness at the same time it now extends down my left leg (to a lesser degree than my arm and finger). Can this pinched nerve also have this effect on my left leg?
Thanks in advance for any information.

Hi Sword,

Have you seen a Dr about the pinched nerve? We are not a medical team here at healingwell we are a bunch of people who have the same thing in common here it is chronic pain. Usually by now you would have had a moderator pop in to welcome you and if they could give you some input they do. I personally have back issues, just had surgery a month ago. I'm sure others will be on soon but medically I would go see a Dr and find out exactly what's wrong.
Take care
